Two Homes in Sabino Mountain are Under Contract

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

4029 N Sunset Cliff Place, a two-story Monterey Home that is almost 3K square feet and has a first floor master bedroom and great city views is now under contract. List price is $439,000. I heard from the grape-vine that his buyer got an excellent deal from a very motivated Seller.

4048 N Sunset Cliff Place, a two-story home that is about 2,400 square feet and has a pool and spa ,went under contract as well. The list price is $361,500 for this foreclosed home. The lender offered 3.5% closing costs to the buyer and the final sales price, of course, is unknown, until close of escrow. This home has a lovely setting, but needed some work.

I will post the final sales prices after the closing.

Photos bring Buyers in to Look at Listings

Monday, March 29th, 2010

I continue to be amazed by some of the photos the listing agents put in the multiple listing of their homes listed for sale at Sabino Mountain. Don’t get me wrong, some listing agents have great photos, and some ulitlize professional photographers.However, the majority have so-so photos that hurt their Sellers because they do not draw in as many buyers to view their homes for sale, as would be the case of the photos were more appealing.

Another Price Reduction in Sabino Mountain

Monday, March 29th, 2010

4379 N Ocotillo Canyon dropped its list price to 375K. This home is less than 1,900 square feet and still seems over-priced, in my personal opinion. This one-story has a 3 car garage, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and is in super condition. In this market, if you are not priced competitively, the house will not sell.

Boulder Canyon has Another Home Listed for Sale

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Today 4134 N Boulder Canyon was listed for sale at 799K. This home sold for 825K less than 2 years ago. This home joins the other Outpost Builders semi-custom home for sale with almost the identical floorplan on the same street. Both are approximately 3,400 square feet. The floorplan is the popular very open great room–kitchen–dining room floorplan. The other home has been listed for quite some time and does not have a pool, spa, or outdoor fireplace, and is priced a little less.

4546 N Saddle View Drive went under contract after just being listed a few days. The list price is $369,000, which is a great price for this almost 2,500 square foot two-story home that boasts a 3 car garage, granite Kitchen countertops, maple cabinets, and flagstone patio with fountain. To add to the list of attractive features, this home was also freshly painted and had new carpets. This buyer got a good deal!

Another Price Reduction for a Ridge-top Sabino Mountain Home

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

4081 N Quail Canyon is now priced at $1,145,000 and is down from its beginning list price over a year ago of $1,349,000. It originally sold at the peak of the market in mid-2005 for 875K. It is my person opinion that it is unlikely this home will have any takers until it reduces further.

Price Reduction in Sabino Mountain

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

4507 N Sabino Mountain Drive has reduced its price to $849,000.

Many of the homes with over 3,000 square feet in Sabino Mountain are having a very difficult time getting offers since the prices are seen by many buyers as not being competitive. Homes that are priced well do sell. High-end Foothills homes have a better chance at selling when the snowbirds are here. They will be moving out within the next few months. Let’s hope we see some more price reductions so we will have more Sabino Mountain home sales.
